The 25-years war

Tom Ricks was depressing on NPR’s Talk of the Nation at lunchtime today. He was asked to compare the first Gulf War with the second. I’ll paraphrase his response. “The first Gulf War wasn’t really a war. It was a blip. A four-day ground assault. I think in 100 years historians will look back and see it as the first battle of America’s 25-year war in Iraq.”
